Nice effort with the e-ink display, but the portrait aspect ratio of your video makes seeing your effort very frustrating as few people have screens that are 1920 pixels high.

Since half the screen is just bare wooden table, I decided to crop this to a less annoying to watch 5:4 aspect ratio.  I've thrown the video up here.

That file was generated with the following commands:

$ mencoder -vf crop=1080:864:0:250 ebook\ reader\ eink\ controller\ test-PNuZ6NTleZI.mkv -oac pcm -ovc raw -o ebook-fixed.mkv

$ ffmpeg -i ebook-fixed.mkv -vcodec libvpx -acodec libvorbis ebook-fixed.webm
